Re: Going from Antigua to US-need good reads

Contrary to what is said above, Marsh Harbour IS a good stopping place. TQA is right that the entrance is weather dependent. So, check the weather before you go in. Call the folks inside to see what it looks like from there. But rule it out because the weather might be bad? That seems a bit extreme when I and many others have found it to be a good place to take a break when going from the Carib to the East coast.

If the weather is bad? Keep on going. There. Not so hard.

PS Numerous other possible stopping places in the Bahamas and T and C as you head NW from the islands. Look at a chart
